Trinidad 1
Trinidad turned out to be one of our longer stops this year; we’re now south of the hurricane belt and so out of harm’s way.  Trinidad boasts the best boating facilities in terms of storage and repair in the Caribbean and so whilst we attended to numerous outstanding issues with the boat we took time out to enjoy my birthday with our friend John over from the UK to supervise work to his boat (Stromboli) and with car hire for 12 USD a day it would have been rude not to see something of the island, especially as the wildlife on Trinidad is amazing.  So we took tours to the Nariva Swamp to see parrots, macaws and monkeys, and to the north of the island to see the endangered leather-back turtles emerging from the sea on a bright moonlit night to lay their eggs, a sight that will stay with us all for a long time.
